Ivanka Trump Is Exception to Dad's 'Buy American' Rule
AFP Sat, Mar 11 7:57 PM PST

Beijing (AFP) - In his January inauguration speech, US President Donald Trump made a seemingly straightforward pledge: "We will follow two simple rules: buy American and hire American."

His daughter is the exception: even as he spoke, at least eight shipments of Ivanka Trump-branded shoes, bags and clothes more than 59 tons were steaming towards American ports from China, according to US Customs bills of lading examined by AFP.

Trump uses his presidential pulpit to censure manufacturers both domestic and foreign for using overseas labor to make goods for American consumers, but the Ivanka-branded orders have kept rolling in.

More than two tons of ladies' polyester woven blouses, 1,600 cowhide leather wallets and 25 tons of made-in-China footwear were among at least 82 such shipments that passed US Customs almost one per business day from Trump's November 8 election win through February 26, records showed.

Ivanka will surely be happy to see this new, Albeit pathetic, attempt to hurt her sales. So far the lefty boycott attempts have done her well with sales of her product lines increasing expotentialy beyond expectations.

This new tempest just puts her product line up for more free advertisements. Amazon and Wal-Mart love the free publicity and the upgrade her products bring to their stores.

Ya'll should do one of these every two or three months to keep the sales pace up for her products.

If you want to kill sales, have Hilary tout the line wearing some of it. It shouldn't be a problem for Pant Suit as she has never before been bothered by hypocrisy .

And not a single peep from you about manufacturing in China.

Why should I? I'll just get called a shill for supporting the Trumps.

We've been down this road over The Donald's ties. And his buildings are hardly made of American Steel for the same reasons. Because of bad trade agreements by our Government, essentially, for an American builder,,,;There isn't any.

As a small AMERICAN business, I compete against China and try to keep it here. And often win on our own merits.

But I cannot be pure American Made. A term that is loosely used and often misleading. GM uses mostly foreign parts suppliers to build their "Made in America" cars.

I wish I could buy my films from the USA. I use to drive to Terra Haute IN and watch them process my order. But the EPA's and Bean counters have sent it offshore. So one of my components comes from Argentina.

This may all seem just bullsh!t to you but then this is a bullsh!t topic in a Bullsh!t thread.
I remember Bill O'Reily apologizing for out of stock on some of his "Premium" items because there just was not enough USA producers to meet his demand. He has that luxury, I do not.

Ivanka likely has the same issues. And since she sells to Walmart, they will tell her to outsource it. Despite their PR about American made, they still send their suppliers packing to China if they want to keep the Wal-Mart account.

I know, they have done it to me three times.

Currently, I'm doing Eclipse glasses for them. The glasses are made in Barlett TN. But the lens material is out of Mexico or Argentina and the paper is out of China.

I'm wrapping them in Argentina Film but the boxes are sealed with tapes made in Taiwan. You know,,,; China. But the labels on the product sold at Wal-Mart say, MADE IN AMERICA.

It is a world economy. When Americans make competitive BOPP here again, I'll buy it. When we make paper here again, I'll buy it. But we cannot, and should not, expect our retailer shelves to be full of products if we demand exclusivity to American sources.

Ivanka's company is an American one. She will surely source here if possible. If not then she will do what everyone else does, go where she can get her products produced. Most likely in countries where the work ethic still exists and folks who were too lazy to stay in school don't get a check from the Gubmit.

Meanwhile go have some Chilean Grapes. They are the best on the planet and where most winter time fresh grapes are sourced for your supermarket. Try buying good, fresh, American ones this time of year. If they are American, they are from cold storage.

Established in 1957, we began as a small neckwear manufacturer in the historic garment district of Manhattan, with the goal of creating a product made in America that featured all the sophisticated elegance of Europe's finest artisan workshops.

Today, we proudly carry on this legacy of true handmade production, and the timeless tradition of hand sewn quality is being passed on to a new generation of skilled artisans and hand crafters. By combining a half century of experience with the innovative technology of the internet, we are now able to offer our exclusive collection direct to you from our factory.

Film for what?
Really? I'm a contract packager. "PACKAGE!!!! We overwrap items so they can

go next to food or maybe are food. It's what candy bars come in, and cookies.


I buy anywhere for 5 to 10 tons of very thin, high grade, heat sealable film structures for this purpose. Mostly BOPP, but some PET and some LLD's and LHD'S blown, extruded and cast. Sometimes a laminations of several structures.

Right now I am building two lines for customers who wish to wrap their own Candy bars, Rice cakes, and Cookies. Startups are our favorite charities. I say that because it is a risky proposition to participate in a startup. 1 in 25 make it.

That said,,,;

How much of your "neck wear" is priced for the common customer? How much is at Target or Walmart? Where the average working stiff buys their clothing.

No need to be rude. I don't know diddly squat about contract packaging. When you say film I think Kodak, Fuji, Ilford, etc.

I never said Trump Ties sold a Wal-Mart. I said Ivanka's lines are sold there.

Also, I have likely posted a 100 times what my company does. I very often use my personal experiences as a Small business person to exhibit the direct and indirect effects of government policies on my company. I'm not offended that you didn't give the postings much attention, just surprised.

It's Okay though. I would hazard to say almost 99% of the people in this nation have unknowingly handled or purchased something with our products in it. Coupons, toys, promotional samples, we have produced hundreds of millions of packages. And nobody knows our name.

Good thing I'm in it for the money and not the fame.
